A Day At The Temecula Berry Company - Global Women Network

A Day At The Temecula Berry Company

We recently visited the Temecula Berry Company in Temecula, CA .  The Temecula Berry Farm was founded in the late 1990s as a family farm and is located towards the east side of Temecula near Temecula Wine Country.   We visit the farm a couple times each year with our family.   It’s the only Blueberry Farm in Southern California.  You can pick blueberries with your family, bring a larger group for a tour or visit the farms on a  field trip with your students and/or preschoolers.  All tours are free.

In addition to picking berries you can purchase blueberry jam and honey.    Picking berries at the Temecula Berry Co is a great way to bond with your family.

We had a fantastic day at the farm! We started our day by meeting farmer Mike and visiting the pig farm and hen house.  We learned about the care and animal eating habits.  They were a lot of fun to watch.  Afterwards, we headed over to the Berry farm for a fun afternoon of picking berries.

 Tips for Visiting the Farm

We recommend a hat, umbrella and backpack to ensure you have your hands free while you pick berries.   For hot days we also recommend a couple of bottles of water.  Make sure to bring a wagon or jogging stroller for smaller children who walk slow.  If you have very active kids, they may enjoy walking through the blueberry trees and may feel restricted if you try confine them to a stroller.   Consider letting the kids roam through the blueberry trees to watch them explore.  Their eyes will light up as they discover blueberries.

 Tips For Picking Berries

Our grand daughter loved her first visit to the farm.  Not only did she get to spend quality time with us, but she felt very independent as she picked berries and showed us her bucket getting fuller and fuller.

If it is your first time, get a bucket for each of the children in your group.  Make sure to ask the staff where the best berry picking is located today, then find an area where there are a few people to pick the best berries.  We found the best areas near the foothills and came home with 2 pints of berries, blueberry jam and honey.  Don’t forget to wash your berries before eating them.

We’re off to pick Blueberries… Wait for us!

 Tips For Creating Lasting Memories

One of the reasons we love to visit the blueberry farm is because we can get away from the busyness and hustle and bustle of our lives and take day trips to create lasting family memories.  Bring the camera, stay awhile and take candid shots of your family.   Also consider dressing up the kids in cute spring clothing or matching outfits to take a memorable family photo or candid shots of your kids.
